Josh Peck's third goal with 2:50 remaining proved to be the game-winner as No. 9 Broadneck took a 6-5 boys lacrosse decision from archrival Severna Park in Anne Arundel County last night.

The visiting Bruins (8-0) lost three straight to the No. 12 Falcons (4-2) last spring, which made this win more special.

"We came in here thinking we were going to run over them, but it didn't happen like that," said Peck. "We didn't play amazing and they played well, got to give it to them. There was a lot of heart and a lot of hitting like it always is when we play Severna Park. Love these games."

The final goal by Peck followed Shawn Summerville's goal, which had broken a 4-4 tie with just over five minutes left to play. Junior Ben Hunt scored his second goal of the game with 0:54 left to make it 6-5, but the Falcons couldn't get the tying goal.

"We were too selfish, undisciplined, unforced errors, throwing the ball out of bounds, too many men on the field," said Falcons first-year coach Jimmy Beardmore. "They were lacrosse players not using their heads. Lacrosse players have to be unselfish and have to be smart. We weren't."

After losing the faceoff to the Bruins' Kyle Bloomfield following Hunt's goal, the Falcons stole the ball back. With possession and 27 seconds left, the Falcons called time only to throw the ball -- and the game -- out of bounds with 0:13 remaining.

Both goalies -- Broadneck freshman Pat Simpson and Severna Park's Mike Gvozden, who was All-County as a freshman last year -- played well. Simpson had 12 saves; Gvozden, 11.

"They're two of the best young goalies in the state," said Broadneck coach Clay White.
